This is where Intel should be going in keeping with what it's good at, manufacturing chips! It makes more sense than trying to compete in other markets.

Yeah, the problem is, everybody is their direct competitor. The only thing x86 had going all of these years is that Windows could only be run on it. Intel has about as much of a future in embedded SOC applications as they do in high-end graphics cards.

They probably have some inside information that heterogenous multicore chips from AMD and Nvidia are about to stomp them into the ground.

It keeps it working and highly profitable, but it also gives Intel a look at competitor's designs ;)

News papers with scrolling text and moving images. That would be nice.

I hope 14nm would be in 2014 and not 2015.

It is a good step by Intel and this will increase its ROI from each Fab.
